Baja Belly!

WHO is grrrooooowing???  It's my special lil' sistah!  And my lil' sis is expecting a WEE WEE Baby... all the way from Paris, France (well, that is where she was vacationing... ya know).  It just dawned on me that I should have added an Eiffel Tower in the background of the journal!  Ahhhhh - I already popped the journal in the mail!  Se la Vie... course I studied Spanish and have no idea how to spell in French.... sorry!

The cute little journal uses the new In-Color Baja Breeze... the new designer series paper in Baja Breeze and the new Baja Breeze ribbon!!!  Our darling prego stamp is a retired set by SU!... definitely an old favorite that I will not part with!  The edgings of the papers are cut with the new scallop edge punch... looooove it!  And I did also use the spiral punch for the nifty holes that line up!

Go make your own today!

Some day my fairy will come...

Forget about the prince... a six year old little girl has bigger things to think about... like dreaming that one day she will lose a TOOTH and her fairy will come!

Of course, my brother dispelled this vision for my own little sister.  Instead, he told tales of a big ugly TROLL who liked to hunt for loose teeth and would actually dare hike across your face and snatch them from your sleeping lips.  

Howdya like that for big brothers!!!

Well, my little six year old girl is waiting - and waiting - to lose a loose tooth.  So we created a beautiful tin watchmaker's palace for the pearly whites to reside in when they finally do shake loose.

The tin is decorated in Stampin' Up! supplies we had around the craft room.  Retired Slumber Party paper in fanciful pinks and plums made perfect backdrops to IF THE HALO FITS - a SU! Dormant stamp (which means you can purchase it but it isn't displayed in the catalog).  Of course, a fairy isn't complete without some ribbon, glitter, hodgepodge hardware in styled silver, pink reinkers and crystal effects!!!!
